Retired neurosurgeon Dr. Ben Carson is looking and sounding more and more like a man preparing to run for office, namely the office of the President.
Dr. Ben Carson has been receiving thousands upon thousands of petitions asking, if not demanding, that he run for President.
Dr. Carson is also doing quite well in many of the various straw polls, which gauge the appeal of candidates and the interest level of certain voting blocs regarding the leading potential candidates.
Dr. Carson recently appeared on Fox News and spoke with host Shannon Bream, first about the Israel/Hamas conflict, then about his probable run for the Presidency, signaled by the creation of a Political Action Committee (PAC). (H/T Fox News Insider)
“We did put together a PAC this weekend, called the USA First PAC, and really we need to put the groundwork in place in case we make subsequent decisions, because you never want to go in flat-footed, but also because we want to be able to support those candidates who are running this fall.”
“I think this is a critical election. If we don’t get by this election this fall, I don’t know how much good infrastructure will be left, in terms of a democratic society.”
“The fact of the matter is, if we don’t have a major change, and we have people who have common sense, and not have people who are trying to create a quote Utopian society, that so many have tried in the past, then we could very easily lose America as it stands, so that’s why we created a PAC, to really move forward that process of helping to win the Senate this fall.”
“We have to do things that work for everybody. We have to put the Constitution back on the top step, and we have to stop picking and choosing which laws we want to enforce.”
As usual, Dr. Carson is right. This November’s midterm election is vitally crucial and critical. The GOP must remove Harry Reid from his position as Senate Majority Leader, if there is any hope of getting anything done, or even of just stopping President Obama’s agenda.
Carson is a wise man full of common sense. He would make an excellent President, as he would rely on his knowledge of history, our nation’s founding principles, and the Constitution to lead this nation back to greatness and prosperity.
